We cultivate regenerative culture by providing education, resources, and a platform for community to flourish.
REGENERATION: A regenerative culture aims to evolve today’s society by embracing the indigenous worldview of seeing the Earth as alive and community as sacred, to help reform our industries and our politics to take better care of our world and our people.
As a social enterprise, our goal is to inspire and reward people and businesses who go above and beyond to give back to their community and the planet. We create spaces that celebrate what is sacred : nature and community. We also offer a free membership program with resources such as bulk discounts on regenerative everyday goods, and free programs that foster healing and regeneration. Order everyday goods on our online store here and pick up during community cafe hours MWF 7am-3pm. Members receive a discount code from 50-25% off according to income level.
We also created a website for neighborhood fair exchange by bartering skills and resources, called the the RResource, currently in a beta version.
Our Commitments to Regeneration: Our space is 100% renewably powered because we purchase regional wind energy credits from Clean Choice for our electricity, and we do not use natural gas. We only use ecologically and socially responsible products from toilet paper to cleaning supplies to commercial dishwashing soap. We purchased reused items for furniture when possible. We have cutlery and plates and a water filter system, so there is no need for single use products or bottled waters. We work with Vokashi for composting all fruits, vegetables, papers, meats, and dairy products too.
We believe that ecological wellness stems from personal wellness, and community wellness stems from inclusivity and diversity.
